Five stars all the way! This is only the second time I've seen Paul Currie but I know he's already one of my must-sees at all future Fringes! This is my ideal mix of stand up jokes with a unique addition of madcap action, music and some brilliantly delivered pop-culture references. This is such an engaging show that the whole audience is easily and enthusiastically drawn into the fun from front row to back. There's an important and powerful message in there... and panda hands. Love it!

I saw the show at the Hive a few nights ago. First time for me for the Fringe or really any type of live comedy. I don’t really know wtf I saw and frankly I love that I can’t pigeonhole it. It was fun, scary, and emotionally charged at the same time - I wasn’t expecting to cry at a comedy show. What I do know is that 4 nights later I’m back in Seattle and still thinking about it.
And I want more.

A joyous hour of comedy, audience participation and surreal moments, we laughed, we sang and tucked it in. Group Therapy has never been so good, it should be prescribed on the NHS

Paul’s Show was a recommendation from a friend and how thankful we was for it. It’s the show of the fringe , beautifully crazy. Catch his family show ‘Release the Baboons’ to really complete your visit to Edinburgh. Take our recommendation and spread the word!!

A lot of Paul’s audience (including me) have seen him many times before and return for more. If you are new to his work my advice is to reach for your inner child and go with the flow. It is zany, laugh out loud funny, extremely silly, quizzical with an occasional serious message. So many emotions, so much energy you can never fully prepare for his inventiveness but I will always be back for more. Go for an experience you will never forget.

Paul’s show was my favourite show at Edinburgh in 2018 & I have no doubt he will be again this year, although, it’s almost impossible to explain why....just remember your tissues you’ll need them to mop up the joy....

Fest (4/5 stars) 120 days ago

One could experience a performance of Trufficle Musk and conclude that Paul Currie is a master at getting audiences on side, but his relationship with today's crowd evidently goes back beyond this particular show. Even before he has said or done anything, the sell out room has willingly offered itself...

In the midst of this show with a manifesto, Paul Currie declares that religion is just a thing humanity invented because we’re scared of death. The validity of which can be debated elsewhere, but religion did/does fulfil a human need, … Read More ...

The Edinburgh Fringe is dominated by comedy. It’s by far the biggest section in the book. This means there are many talented comedians doing the same type of show. There are a smaller number of acts who are less mainstream and they stand out because of this. And then there...
